Does anyone find it coincidental that the Maverick Pro blades have come available at the same time as the TT carbons? Other than the different molded in finishes, they appear to be quite similar. Any of you shop boys care to shed some light on this?

One thing I know for sure, is that Hirobo blades are made by Fun-Key. But hirobo blades are three times more expensive. Everything is made in China. I wouldn´t be surpriced if they also make other brands blades.

The tips on the TT blades are different. They sweep but then have a staright edge towars the trailing edge of the blade. Will fly them tomorrow at the fun fly.

Hey Spookey, got a PIC of them? Come on man, we are all dyeing to see what they actually look like. Are they actually carbon, or "carbon reinforced" fiberglass? How stiff are they? Any help would be great!

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

Don't have a pic. They are carbon and stiff!! I was talking to Jeff Fasbinder and he said the weights will be between 130 to 156 grams. Th set I got were 156 grams. Heavy for 600's but fly AWESOME!! The cyclic was the same as the funkeys I was running which are alot lighter and not as stiff. The blades store alot of energy in them. The inboard blade is black and the outboard is white. It's a 50/50 split and the black is the carbon weave. Nice blades!!

My 2 cents...

Got the new 600 blades at Phoenix...They rock!

Rod "auto King" Knight says they auto like V blades. Both our sets weigh in at 135 G., but I feel the heavier sets will fly well, and auto even better. Rods' 50 V2 is a sight to see with the new blades....almost as quiet as an electric, smooth as a Fury, and has gobs of power....Not bad for under $500 out of the box.

Good job, TT!

Hello... ;)

Hey what's up with Heliproz and the blades... What are they last on the list seems like everybody (stores) received the tt blades... I just called and was told "still not received the blades yet" ...
I mean it's all good... but My R50V2 wants to "Be all it can be"

Heli proz used to be number one, now they are just average.
Eric should throw something in with the free blades!
They claim to be the biggest dealer for raptors they should get the blades first .. (Gues they dont have that much pull with Ace!!!!) or just give us something for the wait, like a free set of mavericks
